Description

Overview

Basecamp project management software allows you to perform project management tasks online since the software is hosted; making it ideally suited for project groups located across geographical areas or team members who are often away from the office.

Users only need an Internet connection to access a project; therefore, connecting to a server is not necessary. Since users of Basecamp access project details remotely, project team members can modify details simultaneously, share information, and keep the important details of their project current.

Features

Basecamp’s key features include:

  • A unique use of message boards instead of emails to share information such as document files and photos, as well as discuss and easily communicate ideas with team members and clients.
  • The ability to upload and share project files (the most common file formats are compatible), add comments, create new versions of updated documents, and store the existing versions.
  • Assignment of project tasks, lists, and project milestones which can be displayed in Google Calendar, Outlook, Backpack, .Mac, or iCal calendars.
  • The ability to reuse project templates and create tasks or to-do lists which saves you valuable time.
  • Software translation in multiple languages and the capability to easily switch languages.
  • Support of the most common browsers including, Internet Explorer 7 or 8, Firefox 3 and higher, Safari 4, and Chrome 4.
  • Mobile web browser access to projects using Smartphone’s such as iPhone, Blackberry, and Android.

Basecamp is used internationally by large companies and small to medium-sized businesses and is well suited for project members that are located remotely. Users find that the dashboard is effective and easy-to-use making project management more appealing.
